  • Prayer for Visiting a Grave on All Souls’ Day

    In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Leader: Praise be to God our Father, who raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Blessed be God for ever. All: Blessed be God for ever. Reading from Corinthians We know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven. [2 Corinthians 5:1] Leader: Lord God, whose days are without end and whose mercies beyond counting, keep us mindful that life is short and the hour of death unknown. Let your Spirit guide our days on earth in the ways of holiness and justice, that we may serve you in union with the whole Church, sure in faith, strong in hope, perfect in love. And when our earthly journey is ended, lead us rejoicing into your kingdom, where you live for ever and ever. R. Amen. Leader:    Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, R.    And let perpetual light shine upon them. Leader:    May they rest in peace. R.    Amen. Leader:    May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. R.    Amen. Taken from Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers, © 1988, USCCB. All rights reserved
  • The Place of Silence at Mass

    We are surrounded by noise in our daily lives. Th sounds from TV, cell phones, and a plethora of the latest electronic devices bombard our senses. Our Catholic Church gives us a great gift of periods of silence at Mass. One of these special places is during the Liturgy of the Word. The Church explains:
    “The Liturgy of the Word is to be celebrated in such a way as to favor meditation, and so any kind of haste such as hinders recollection is clearly to be avoided. In the course of it, brief periods of silence are also appropriate… so that the Word of God may be grasped by the heart and a response through prayer may be prepared. It may be appropriate to observe such periods of silence, for example, before the Liturgy of the Word itself begins, after the First and Second Reading, and lastly at the conclusion of the Homily.” (GIRM, no. 56)
    Our readers at Church will now pause briefly for a period of silence after they have proclaimed the Word of God. We Catholics believe that when the Word of God is proclaimed “God is speaking to his people.” Use this period of silence to let God’s word be grasped by your heart. Ask yourself “how am I to respond to God? by Sr. Linda Gaupin, CDP, Ph.D.

    Residents and staff of The Russell Home in Orlando had reason to celebrate this past week. On October 2, The Knights of Columbus Council #13240 of Blessed Sacrament met with representatives of The Russell Home in the parish ministry building to present the organization a donation of $5,000.

    Proceeds from the Knight’s Golf Tournament Fundraiser are used toward the donation. “(The Russell Home) is a fantastic organization and they are at the top of our list every year,” said Jim Laria, a member of the Council’s Board of Trustees.

    Located in Orlando, The Russell Home was founded over 60 years ago as the first non-profit institution in the country for brain-damaged children. The Home is the only private, non-profit facility of its kinds for severely handicapped children in Central Florida.
